Converting Text to Number in 2000
I have a spreadsheet that has a sum formula at the end of a column. Th
problem is that the last 7 or 8 values being summed seem to be text.
However, if you go to format cells they show up as numbers. In Offic
XP you can simply click on the Green arrow in the upper left han
corner and select convert to number. This fixes the problem and all i
well. In 2000 this function is not available. Is there a way t
convert these values without having to retype all the values in?

Select the cells.
Give them a number format.
Data/text to ...How does text overflow work on added pages?
I reduced the size of the text boxes on 30 existing pages and added 10
additional pages to hold the remainder of the text. How do I get the text to
overflow to these added pages?
Click on the box with the text, then on the icon that looks like a chain, it
will turn into a puring pitcher. Click on the next text box you want to use.

When I print from visio 2007, all of the text prints as jiberish. I tried
two different printers with PCL drivers; same results. Any help would be
great. Thank you!
Can you give a few more details? What are you trying to print and how is it
coming out? Is this the first time printing from Visio? Do you have any
language packs installed?

I have a cell with multiple lines (alt/enter line breaks)

So I see only the first line and that's how I want it.
Now, when I edit this cell the word wrapping gets
automatically enabled (checked box) and row height
gets adjusted to fit the text.
It seems alt/enter breaks auto enable the wrapping,
but what I need visible is a clean one line row no matter
what text I put in.

I am a student who is learning MS Publisher 2003. In mail merges, publisher
does not recognize tab-delimited text files. If you try to mail merge with a
tdt file, the data appears as one column entry, making it impossible to sort
by separate fields or insert separte fields as a formally formatted address
block. Converting the file to a comma-delimited text file (comma separated
values) solves the problem. The fields appear separately as they should in
the Mail Merge Recipients dialog box, so that you can sort by separate fields
and then set up a properly formatted address block. Pl...
